These teams will participate in the Empire Amateur Hockey Conference (EAHC), which consists of approximately 100 youth hockey teams all located within the greater Rochester area. All home games and practices will be held at the GCCC in Canandaigua. At least two of the teams at this age group will play at the same time for all home games. Away games will be at other participating organizations in the EAHC and the Knights Red team, White team, and Blue team will likely not be traveling together (for the most part). All game times and locations are determined by the RWB scheduler for the EAHC .
Teams will practice two nights per week: Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 - 6:20PM* beginning on Monday, September 19th. *Please Note: Practice times will shift to 6:00 - 6:50PM beginning on Monday October 31st and will remain at this time throughout the remainder of the season.
The final number of teams will be determined based on the total number of participants and skill levels within this age group.
